Hard Fought Win

Another good performance from our BSRFC B's vs a big Chess Valley team in Division 3, although injuries and absences meant they only travelled with the bare x15.
Honours were even in the first half at 15 - 15, after us going behind 0 - 10 after the first quarter we managed to steady the ship and took our opportunities, with the strong wind gusting across the pitch making it very hard for the kickers and we matched-down when Chess Valley had a couple of injuries, that thankfully could all retake to the field by oranges.
We shipped another couple of early tries at the start of the second half, out wide again but as our visitors tired and we could make use of rotating our x3 subs, we started to get a grip of the game and a few missed or tired tackles crept in to give our lads the room to run and we saw two tries apiece from our forwards and backs to just one more from our guests.
A competitive game throughout, played in good spirit, providing x13 tries for the touchline parents to enjoy. Thanks to Chess Valley for travelling up for this HML fixture and we look forward to a return visit in the near future to Croxley Green for a Colts friendly.
Next-up its Old Albanians B's, to stay top of the Division.
